Folk, roots and jazz music will resonate around Red Deer’s First Friday gallery openings for February.

Guitarist Bradford Lawlor will play a mix of roots and folk music at the Snell Auditorium of the Red Deer Public Library, while the Best of the West Travelling SAQA (Studio Arts Quilts Association) Trunk Show goes on next door in the Kiwanis Gallery.

The displayed quilt squares tell some colourful stories in this exhibit presented by the library and Red Deer Arts Council.

The quilt show runs to March 2. But the First Friday presentation, featuring refreshments and Lawlor’s musical performance, runs from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on First Friday, Feb. 7.

The Love of Photography, a show of snapshots by Jessica Swainson, runs to Feb. 28 at The Hub on Ross. A First Friday reception will be held from 4 to 6 p.m.

Lovers of jazz, blues and funk might want to stick around for a 7 p.m. concert at The Hub by the Claude A. Godin Trio.

Award-winning saxophonist, Godin, will be joined by drummer Carlos Copaban and pianist Ricardo Villacorta at 4936 Ross St. Tickets are $15 per person or $30 per family at the door (cash only).

Abstract artist Paul Boultbee presents a year in pictures with his Tiny Moments exhibit at the Harris-Warke Gallery, upstairs at the Sunworks store on Ross Street.

The show goes to Feb. 15, but an opening reception will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday.

Paintings by Amber Jackson are showing at the Velvet Olive lounge until the end of the month, while photos by Jim McKinley will be displayed for the same duration at Cafe Pichilingue.
